Kroger program cuts ties with Indiana Oath Keepers, citing allegations following riot

TIM EVANS | INDIANAPOLIS STAR | 18 hours ago

In the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, Kroger has removed the Indiana Oath Keepers from a program that allows customers to direct donations to nonprofit organizations.

We were dismayed to learn today this group is part of the Community Rewards program,” Eric Halverson, Kroger’s manager of corporate affairs, said Tuesday in an email response to a question from IndyStar. “Given the concerning nature of the allegations against this organization, we have immediately removed the group from receiving customer-directed funds.”

Several people affiliated with the national Oath Keepers movement were among those who allegedly entered the Capitol building. They include Hoosier Jon Schaffer, a heavy metal guitarist who was photographed in an Oath Keepers ballcap inside the Capitol. He is facing six federal criminal charges after he was accused of spraying a police officer with a pepper-based bear repellant.

More at link. FBI might want to take a look at the folks who chose this terrorist organization for their donations.

1. I thought so

Kroger is not a bad company at all, and often try to be better.

3. Can't wait until President Biden declares Oathkeepers a terrorist organization

Along with Proud Boys, 3%ers, etc.

They won’t be able to raise a penny in donations.

4. Same here!!!

Who in their right mind (clear operative!) would select a terrorist org for their grocery donations.

Maybe all who selected them will be charged as accomplices for funding terror!

Now you, Amazon Smile. Apparently they are still looking into the situation.
